The Equity Challenge in China's Higher Education Finance Policy
Sun, Fengshou; Barrientos, Armando
Higher Education Policy, v22 n2 p191-207 Jun 2009
Sustaining China's rapid economic growth in the future will come to depend in large part on the quantity and quality of the human resources it can mobilize. The paper considers the prospects for higher education financing, and highlights the importance of improving equity in access to higher education as a precondition for a sustainable expansion in the higher education sector. The paper aims to throw light on two key questions: What are the links existing between current financing arrangements and equity in access to higher education? What kind of financing arrangements could ensure increasing access to higher education? (Contains 4 tables and 2 notes.)
